The Loyola Tradition


Loyola is a Jesuit, Catholic school that challenges its young men to become intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to doing justice.

A university-preparatory school, Loyola is committed to the development of the whole person through a comprehensive educational experience of academic excellence, spiritual and religious formation, and extra-curricular involvement.

In the Ignatian spirit of care and concern for the individual, Loyola strives to develop the diverse and unique talents of each member of the Loyola community, and encourages the use of these talents to serve others for the greater glory of God.


Loyola's rich history of serving Montreal's English Catholic community spans well over one hundred years. Prior to its establishment as a distinct entity in 1896, Loyola was the English section of Collège Ste-Marie, which was founded in 1848. (see Our Timeline)

Loyola has a long tradition of excellence of educating "Men for Others" who are intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to doing justice.

Through the continuity and direction of the Jesuits, the dedication of competent and committed faculty and staff, the generous support of parents, alumni and friends, Loyola continues to be an enduring, vibrant institution of learning.
